I've been using PureRef for a few months now and I'm really happy with it. It's a great tool for organizing references and creating moodboards. It's simple and intuitive to use, efficient and customizable. The interface is very clean and the performance has always been smooth. The feature that allows you to share and collaborate with other users is especially useful. I also appreciate the fact that you can import images directly from Dropbox and Google Drive. The free version is a great way to get started with the software. Overall, I'm very satisfied with PureRef and would highly recommend it.
